3.   Staff Recommendations

That the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board recommends that the Council:

1.         Approve the installation of a 40 kilometres per hour variable speed limit on Aidanfield Drive (school zone) as it meets the requirements of Section 7.1 of the Land Transport Setting of Speed Limits Rule 2003, and the New Zealand Gazette Notice (21/04/2011, Number 55, page 1284) including the times of operation.

2.         Approve, subject to the Council approving recommendation 1 above, that pursuant to Clause 5(1) of the Christchurch City Speed Limits Bylaw 2010, a variable speed limit (40 kilometres per hour School Speed Zone) apply on Aidanfield Drive, commencing at a point 45 metres north west of its intersection with Bibiana Street and extending in a north westerly direction for a distance of 380 metres.

3.         Approve, subject to the Council approving recommendation 1 above, that pursuant to Clause 5(1) of the Christchurch City Speed Limits Bylaw 2010, a variable speed limit (40 kilometres per hour School Speed Zone) apply on Coppinger Terrace, commencing at its intersection with Aidanfield Drive and extending in a south westerly direction for a distance of 75 metres.

·     Level of Service: 10.0.31 Protect vulnerable users – minimise the number of fatal crashes involving pedestrians and cyclists

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 2 - Do Nothing

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Increase amount of signage on the traffic route.

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1       The Council has a commitment to improve road safety. Reducing excessive vehicle speeds, where appropriate, outside schools during peak arrival and departure periods improves safety for children. The Council has a programme of installing 40 kilometres per hour variable speed limits (known as ‘School Speed Zones’) outside schools according to a prioritisation process. This process, including the methodology behind it, was endorsed by the Council on 25 August 2011 as the most appropriate method of improving road safety outside certain schools, where no other traffic control device(s) are practical or feasible.

5.2       For some time, the Aidanfield Christian School have raised concerns about the traffic environment around the school and the consequential road safety implications for children on their way to and from school.
